On Saturday, Aug. 12, join the NC Coastal Federation and Second Wind Eco Tours for a kayak and yoga trip to Jones Island. The adventure runs from 9am to noon.

The group will paddle from the Cedar Point Wildlife Landing. Depending on wide and tide, the paddle to Jones Island is usually a casual 20-30 minute paddle suitable for adult beginners.

Once on the island, participants will learn about conservation and restoration projects coordinated by the park and the federation. A yoga instructor will lead the group in a gentle yoga session under the shade of the island’s live oak trees. A swim from the island’s beach will prepare paddlers for the trip back to the Wildlife Landing.

“Partnering with the Coastal Federation enhances the paddle experience for kayakers,” Clark said. “Providing education and advocacy to our trips adds value and is a smart way to ensure we can use these waterways for years to come.”

The cost, with kayak rental, is $35 for federation members, $45 for nonmembers; $20 for federation members and $30 for nonmembers who bring their own kayak. Guests are asked to bring bottled water, towels, hat or visor, sunscreen, water shoes and sunglasses. There will be an opportunity to swim, so guests can bring their bathing suit if they like.

To learn more, or to register, call 910-325-3600.
